about them, they do not have to go begging the politicians they may be investigating to please fund their investigations. their funding is totally independent of state lawmakers. so when they want to investigate state lawmakers, they are insulated from those lawmakers trying to shut them down by shutting down their funding. it's a smart system, right? it's a tough system, it's independent, it's aggressively nonpartisan. now it's not like wisconsin elections are perfect. they may have this tough, independent, aggressively nonpartisan structure at the state level, but they do have very partisan elected clerks at the county level who have to administer elections by county. and some of those county officials are more partisan and therefore maybe a little more suspect than others. but the overall structure of the state, the elections are not being run by one of these guys. they're not being run by a katherine harris or a john husted or got guessler there is no statewide elected official who is running the election and endorsing one of the candidates in that election that they are running

, begging for a patch from congress. my theory is this is their way to push us into a flat tax system; right? >> you're correct. the amt is a different way of calculating the tax, taking your income saying we're not giving you many of the itemized deductions and have a different rate. there's been consistently an exemption amount which requires congress to pass a legislation each year to extend it. the exemption is not permanent in our tax code, and right now, it expired going back to january 1st, 2012 so we don't have it right now. >> do you think they could let it go? it's close. in prior years, we had the patch earlier on. >> absolutely, and the irs planned op the patch, and the computers are program the that way. if we don't get it, it not only impacts those who have to pay the amt, but delays refunds because the irs computers have to be reprogrammed. we slotly need the patch and quickly. >> at the same time, though, as dire as it has, they could pass the patch, and say january 15th, make it retroactive and we're fine. just delays the process. >> that's right. until the irs and people kn

in the media jump the gun to call the winner before the race really gets going. well, this week we beg your forgiveness for our own more than slight case of premature speculation. but fact is fact. even before we've inaugurated the election of 2012, positioning has begun for election 2016. there was former florida governor jeb bush, just this week making political reporters salivate by getting about his close to the white house as he could without actually being in it. he met with a group of former staffers at a hotel on pennsylvania avenue giving a smile and a coy response when asked about his plans to one day vie to occupy the presidential mansion just up the block. then just two saturdays ago, florida senator marco rubio was showing a little leg in iowa showing this early nominating state where he broke a fundraising record for the governor there. on tuesday night, this week, rubio and another potential gop heir apparent, congressman paul ryan are looking to get their political weight up by laying out their respective road maps for the jack kemp foundation. republicans ready to turn the
christian kin claim it is against the bible we beg to differ. they wrote this in the "l.a. times," we posted this up on steph stephanie miller facebook. there are only three passages that deal with homosexuality in the new testament. the passages don't deal with homosexuality but with temple prostitution and other abuses. i'm filling in for the ecclesiastical movement until friday. because of dated translations, many version of the bible imply otherwise. as for the old testament they cite leviticus. most acknowledge if we took all of the old testaments literally most of us would make it to age 40. >> stephanie: kill everyone that commits adultery, kill rebellious sons who disaway their parents. kill anyone who works on the sabbath. jesus never addressed the subject of homosexuality other than what can be inferred from his exam of loving and accepting everyone. they were referring to marriage between a man and a woman. where jesus protested the practice of men getting rid of inconvenient wives by handing them
attack. that project, the great project is begging for money. it barely manages to get its basic budget of the year. and this is the sort of thing that i think ought to be supported by the u.s. government in a way that is not. and the final thing we need to do in terms of non-state actors is a al qaeda came the closest to developing wmd when they were in control of the territory in afghanistan which the time and space was to develop wmd to the you have to keep the groups like that. >> talking about the wmd attacks by the non-state actors, chemical, biological, i know in the formal weapons inspector you served on the international task force on the prevention of nuclear terrorism and i wonder if you could talk about the nuclear terrorism. how likely is it? >> again i am a scientist, so i think it is a very small probability to reject the idea 50%. i think it is much less than one but i also say the chance that fukushima happening was less than 1%. it is a low probability and a horrific consequences, and i think as the proliferation happens and the nuclear capabilities, several nuclear ca

's debt been begging you heard the speaker say the word "balanced." that is a key word. let's make that even. i think once both sides get to a number that is pretty close to even, i think we're going to get a deal. host: what is happening today on the house floor? guest: for weeks now, some republicans have been saying what we need to do -- the president has been winning the p.r. campaign on this. what we need to do is pass our own bill to put pressure on the democrats. they will come in today and they will take up a measure that will extend the bush era tax cuts for a certain segment of income earners, those who make below $1 million. it stops the overall tax cuts for everybody which is something the president has been asking for. it raises rates on so-called millionaire's. that gives the president what he has been asking for, basically which is to raise taxes on people who he considers wealthy. the president has a different number in mind. the ones to raise rates on people earning more than 200 -- the ones to raise rates on people earning more than 250,000 -- he wants to raise ra
that susan rice had nothing to do with benghazi and that the talking points were given to her. it really begs the question, why was she out there then? if she had nothing to do with this, she shouldn't have been the spokesperson. she got tripped up not only because of this, because of her record over the last several years. jon: let's interrupt this conversation to hear senator john mccain of arizona. he has been highly critical of susan rice. let's hear what he has to say about the benghazi report. >> -- surrounding the tragedy in benghazi. it has been more than three months after the attack that killed four americans in benghazi including ambassador chris stevens. the american people are beginning to get the answers they deserve but there are many more relevant questions surrounding this tragedy that still need to be answered. the report of the state department's accountability review board, or arb, is a serious and credible effort and identifies failures of both officials and institutions in the department. several people have lost their jobs, specific reforms have been identified to insur
of that trust. i have debated and reasoned, with my colleagues, and i beg you -- do not let the year end without ending sequestration. i urge passage of this measure. >> field that to the gentleman from maryland, mr. van holland. >> thank you, mr. speaker. i want to say to my friend, the chairman of the budget committees, thank you. i want to say to my friend, the chairman of the budget committee, i have great respect for him, and i hope you will not take it the wrong way, but i am glad to have you back. i look forward to working with you next year. i hope we will be able to work in a bipartisan way, starting right now. unfortunately, that does not appear to be the case. we are engaged here in the house, on this floor today, in what has become a ridiculous political stunt which will actually take us much closer as a country to going over and the fiscal cliff. we are wasting valuable time. the speaker will be engaged with the president of the united states in negotiations, read the than having walked away from these negotiations with the president. walking away is becoming a bone bat hut -- a bad
, over mental health as well, but it begs the question will this tragedy be the tipping point in the fight over gun control specifically. i want to bring in some friends of the show right now, ischwab moody mills of the center for american progress, david nakamura and matt welch, editor-in-chief for "reason" magazine. matt, i want to start with you, i've met your 4-year-old daughter, a delightful young lady and i know your politics more than most is a bit nuanced. your perspective not to over state it, your perspective is a bit unique generally. what's your take on a discussion right now? are we talking about the right things as it pertains to -- to this tragedy? >> you know, i think that there's a -- a belief and it's somewhat wrong that we don't have this discussion. i've heard a lot of people saying on twitter it's time that we finally have a discussion about guns in society and gun laws. we actually do have this discussion, not just with every one of these just awful, you know, mind-boggling tragedies, but in general. we've had two supreme court cases, major ones in the la
in g-o-d remains to be seen but it does beg the question of whether, as we attempt to understand and respond to the newtown tragedy, how do people of faith process the unthinkable? here with me, anthea butler, professor of religious studies, joe watkins, pastor of christ evangelical lutheran church in philadelphia, serene jones, president of union theological seminary and chris jenkins, the author of "how an atheist found common ground with the religious." you know, i want to go to reverend joe watkins first because i think this is the question that most commonly gets asked by people of faith after a tragedy like this. where was god? how do you answer that when your parishioners come to you and ask where was god. >> god lets the rain fall on everybody, on good people and people who aren't so good, and he loves us all. sometimes it may feel like we -- it may be hard for us to feel his love but i liken it to when i go up in an airplane, on a rainy day when you fly off somewhere and the clouds are looming, and it's raining, as soon as you get above those clouds, the sun is doing wha
or not her sister -- doesn't know if her sister vicky is dead or alive. she's simply begging for information. she says seeing that photo, it's like reminder of that moment all over. it kills. >> gretchen: brian was just alluding to where the six children ended up who managed to escape. jean rosen had been out for breakfast. came home to his house. here he is finding out about the tragic news and sees these six children standing on his lawn. he thought they were part of a school play, maybe it was a skit they were doing. suddenly the kids were crying ask telling him our teacher is dead. we can't go back to school. what did he do? he brought them inside his home for safety. eventually a school bus driver came in, able to help him identify the children, gave them juice and stuffed animals. called their parents. the saddest part to me about this story is that later on, a parent came to his house and said, i understand that you have some children here who survived. was my child here? and he, unfortunately h to tell her no. >> steve: there is one other story that i saw this morning in the story re
context because now we know the u.s. household net worth has reached a 43-year low. so, it begs the question for washington, this the time now you want to raise taxes on those particular americans? >> this comes from a study from an nyu economics professor and his name is alan wolf and he has said that the net worth, now, this isn't your income, your net worth is now $57,000, the median net worth. in other words, it's the lowest as clayton said in decades because debt has balooned so much in the middle class and your net worth is much lower than it used to be 30 years ago. >> and much because home values have declined. so, the money you owen your home is more than it's worth. so, that's probably-- >> that's the problem. >> alisyn: it's edward wolf and i said-- interestingly, another little tidbit in this study that he did, which is that for the top 1%, the net worth has skyrocketed, it's gone up 71% for the top 1% you've heard so much about, so the discrepancy between the middle class and the upper echelon is bigger than it's been and that may be what president obama is clinging
there in the well begging his colleagues to pass this disabilities convention, maybe his last lobbying effort that he would undertake. it meant so much to the dole family and to robert dole. he came to the floor and we called the measure, and those who witnessed it will remember that most members came and sat in their chairs to cast a vote, which is rare here, and it really tells the story that this was more than just an ordinary, routine vote. we listened as the roll call was made, and we watched the senators stand and vote, and then toward the end i turned to tom harkin who was sitting right over here and i said, we don't have it, we missed it. we did. we failed to ratify this by five votes. 61 votes. we needed 66 votes because senator kirk is antibiotic because of illness -- is absent because of illness. 66 votes we needed to pass this. there were only eight republicans that would stand with all of the democrats to pass this convention on disabilities. senator john mccain led that effort, john mccain, a person who knows the cost of war and the price that's paid and who showed real, extraor
mint's departure from the senate, begs the question is the end nigh for conservatives? let's bring back ari melber, perry bacon, joel sawyer. joel, let's start with you. senator demint's departure has many implications, one of them the influence of outside forces, outside forces, the conservative movement. outside forces of the conservative movement, rather than the leaders themselves. "washington post" pointing out, quote, demint's decision marks a monumental change from a not so long ago era when abandoning a prime perch in the senate to head a think tank would have been unthinkable. but the past decade has shown influence that figures outside elected office, whether tea party leaders or antitax advocates grover norquist can have on the conservative movement. joel, does demint's departure mean that we're going to see an even stronger push by outside groups like the heritage foundation? >> well, you know, i dispute the hypothesis a little bit. outside of what? i view it all as part of one bigger, larger conservative movement. whether it's the heritage foundation or some of the other conservative
